Good Morning Magic!

His magic has made it to the big leagues! The Saratoga Magician, 23-year-old Steven Brundage, has made it big after landing a feature on Good Morning America this morning.

Whoever says they don't believe in magic... they haven't met Steven Brundage. The 23-year-old magician, who is known for his talents locally in and around Saratoga, has made it big. After a 3:00 am pull over by the cops on December 5th, Steven's magic has gone to a whole new level of awesomeness, and even some recent attention from Good Morning America!

Impressions of Saratoga is one of those cornerstone Saratoga stores that we all love for just about a million reasons. With everything from souvenirs for visitors to everyday Saratoga gear, they have it all. We've been thinking though, what is it that really makes Impressions special? It's not the great prices or the variety of selection. It's the little things.

If you're from 'toga, you know how great the local food is. With such a wide variety of options from quick snacks to fine full course meals, Saratoga offers some of the best cuisine around - and people are starting to take notice. Saratoga made it big once again on Z Living TV! The Mouzon House, a local Saratoga restaurant, was recently featured for the second time on Good Food America on November 23, 2014!

Back in May, we announced that Saratoga Springs had made Movoto's list of the 10 Best Places in New York. While we were very happy about Saratoga's inclusion in this list, our own editor Destiny Malone made known her displeasure regarding Saratoga's ranking - tied for 10th. Fear not, Destiny! We're happy to report that Movoto has compiled another list, this time of the Best Small Cities In New York, and Saratoga Springs has jumped up to 4th place!

I don't know about you, but when Friday night rolls around, I'm ready for a glass of wine and comfort food to help me forget about the crazy week that has finally come to an end. Thankfully, someone was listening to my heavenly request - and yes, you're in luck too! Maestro's Restaurant of Saratoga will now be serving their dinner at the The Saratoga Winery EVERY Friday night. Can you say - Friday night bliss?

I don't know about you, but being in Saratoga never fails to make me happy. It could be the delicious food, the lack of traffic, or the virtually non-existent crime rate, but I've always thought of Saratoga as being much more of a quaint, intimate village than an actual city. Apparently I'm not the only one who's delighted by all Saratoga has to offer - a recent study by CreditDonkey named Saratoga Springs not just the happiest city in the area, but the happiest city in the entire state of New York!

The DZ Farm Meet the Chefs Event took place this past Sunday, October 12th, and I had the pleasure of attending on behalf of Saratoga.com.

After reviewing the invitation, I had a good idea of what to expect when I arrived at the farm, but reality blew out my prior expectations. The beauty of the property was completely overwhelming at first, initially making you forget where you were.

Saratoga is well-known for drawing legions of sophisticates from all over the country who flock to the city for its cultural events, fine dining establishments, and shopping boutiques. Everyone knows about the Racetrack, the New York City Ballet at SPAC, and golfing at Saratoga National, but there are a whole host of other events that sophisticates might not be aware of that are right up their alley! To help out well-cultured locals and visitors alike, we've compiled the following list of 7 things sophisticates will love, but may not know about.

Saratoga is recognized for a variety of reasons, from horse races to spas to fine arts and music. Yet, what about a round of applause for 'toga and its vast ethnic cuisine? On October 11, Saratoga Food Fanatic and Network Saratoga are teaming up to present the FIRST annual Saratoga International Flavorfeast, giving your palate the opportunity to try something new!
